Your favourite horse facts?

I'm doing a project this Wednesday where I have to present a cool fact (it's for science) and I wanted to do something with horses..someone already did a fact about how stallions make funny faces to sense if a mare is in heat..so I can't do that one ;)


If you can find a video to go with it, I will make you a signature/avatar if I choose it :)

Thanks!!

Horses have an inborn fear of snakes.

Wild horse herds are led by an alpha mare, not the stallion.

Horses have no muscles below their knees.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. At least, things that might be interesting to non-horse people.

Horses cannot back up in deep snow or back into a step up trailer.

Horses can't see all four feet at the same time but Mules can. That is why they are so sure footed. They can see exactly where to put each foot.

A horses heart weighs 9 pounds

Horses almost always dislike the pig smell (I agree with them!)

Equus comes from the Greek word quickness

The longest horse mane ever recorded was 18 feet long

About 75 million horses inhabit the world, and 1.9 million people own them

The horse's brain is about the size of a potato (for a half ton horse)

Bump!

Can anyone think of a fact that has to do with barrel racing.

I was thinking maybe something about it being dangerous so I could show one of those accident videos ;)
